If your district has chosen to purchase Assessment Series in CommonLit School Essentials PRO or School Essentials PRO Plus, you will not have access to the Free Reading Assessment. Instead, you’ll be able to collect baseline data through the first assessment in the Assessment Series. You’ll also have access to a Mid-Year and a Post-Assessment to help you track students’ reading growth throughout the reading year.
You can view assessment data on the assessment's Analyze Data page as soon as at least one student has submitted their assessment.
From your Assignments page, click on your class's name, and then find the assessment. Click the VIEW DATA button in the bottom right to view comparative data, your students' raw scores, and their standards averages.
If all of your students have completed their assessment, the assessment will move to the Completed view on your Assignments page. Click on the "Completed" tab under the Assignment Status filter on the left hand side to find your class' assessment.
Please note: CommonLit does not offer item analysis for assessments, so neither teachers nor students can see how students answered individual questions. As a result, students will not see their assessment on their My Assignments page after they have submitted, and their performance data for the assessment will not appear on their My Performance tab.
CommonLit does not show teachers or students how students answered individual questions for all other CommonLit assignments. However, the assessment is merely intended to help you understand your students' proficiency at the start of the year so that you can then assign CommonLit reading assignments accordingly.
